VIDEO: Brian Dozier leads homer-happy Twins with this opposite-field grand slam

MINNEAPOLIS — Brian Dozier hit a grand slam to vault the homer-happy Twins into the lead in a game against the Brewers. His teammates joined the fun by slugging four more.

The Twins finished play Tuesday night just 1.5 games back in the American League wild card race, and for all I can tell, there’s no quit in that clubhouse.

Dozier’s homer really got the party started for the Twins. But Eddie Rosario and Max Kepler each added two apiece off the Brewers. Former Twin Matt Garza took the loss.

    Their slide from “buyer” to “seller” was because of 3 pitches thrown by Taylor Rogers in less than a week. The trades were an overreaction to that.

    Luckily Garcia and Kintzler are dispensable (as much as a closer and a new #3 starter can be in a pennant race)……and the reports on the trade seem positive (assuming those projections are worth anything).

    I keep reminding people, this is what ESPN.com projected for this division…..assuming those projections are worth anything.

    I better stop writing. My comments are longer than this article….literally!

      Fritz you’re right it won’t be for another season or two until we know if those trades will pan out for us but like you said they were expendable. Both Kintzler and Garcia are FA’s after this year and we received 3 quality arms in return for them who are under team control for the next few years.
